The NOVA Open 2018 Malifaux Events

Only a few months to go until the premiere wargaming convention on the East Coast! Held Labor Day Weekend (Aug. 30 - Sept. 2), the Nova Open is 4-days of non-stop gaming action, and is host to the first major event in the 2018 U.S. National Faux Tour!.  The best of the best will be competing there, and you can be part of that. 

The Championship grand tournament will be held over five rounds over two days. On the Friday before the Championship, we are running a three round trios team tournament and an Enforcer Brawl.

New This Year

This year we have a few exciting changes to Malifaux events:

  • We are adopting the popular IRON SCORPIUS format. Do you have what it takes to master your faction and carry 5 different masters to victory?
  • By popular demand, this year all Gencon Releases will be legal for play in all events. So if there is a new book (or even a new edition) we will be one of the first events to run it!
  • We are introducing the Golden Scorpius award for the top finishing player who is playing in their first two-day event. If you are new the tournament scene, this is a great time to come play

More Than a Tournament...

The NOVA Open is more than a tournament, it is a 4-day gaming party with thousands of your closest (or soon to be closest) friends! There is round the clock gaming through the the hotel, a robust line-up of vendors, dozens of painting and hobby seminars from world-renowned artists, a charity lounge on the rooftop, a fully-stocked board game library, and a whole slate of events across dozens of game systems!

A few highlights of things this year:

  • This year the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) Lounge will be open Wednesday through Sunday on the Rooftop the whole time! Come drink tasty beverages all the while helping Charity and taking in the nice views of the city.
  • This year the Lounge will feature nightly entertainment including comedians, live music, and live karaoke!
  • World-renowned painter Roman Lappat is offering an in-depth 4-day masterclass the weekend before NOVA
